Co-mingling coarse material with wetter filtered tails could enable the cost-effective construction of safer TSFs

The reality that every refining process faces is that for every product stream, there is a waste stream. Sometimes the reject can be recycled, but with large-scale bulk material handling applications, such as mineral processing, it’s simply not practical. With mining operations pursuing lower grade deposits, the industry needs a safe and cost-effective solution for tailings storage facilities (TSFs) capable of accommodating a 150,000 metric tons per day (mt/d).
